, the biggest issue is the transition to the new ip environment. i mean, internet protocol communications is the future. consumers are driving it. ip technology is the technology that enables all devices to communicate with one another, and it's that transition from an analog world to an ip world that is the biggest single issue. >> host: is there any room for a wire line world anymore? >> guest: well, i think that the wire line world is really the central circulatory system of our my. it is the veins and the arteries that really connect what is now the information economy in the united states. we're seeing data traffic on our wire line networks increase at the rate of 40% per year, and it's wire line networks that connect all forms of communication whether they originate in a wire line environment or a wireless environment. so, yeah, i would say america's future is a wire line future. >> host: joining our discussion is howard buskirk of "communications daily" where he serves as executive senior editor. >> you've already talked about the move to broadband, and one of the things the fcc is
. and it was then and that environment in which the pictures and the news started coming out in vietnam and we discovered this, that the vietnamese that we met were very candid about what they were facing and many of them were our age were very candid about this as well about what they felt and what they saw and therefore we felt that we were getting a clear picture of what was emerging as the conflict grew in size. our vision differed markedly from the kennedy administration was hoping for and definitely from the johnson administration as well, president kennedy late in 1972 found the editor of "the new york times" and found that he help us go back to the united states because his reporting was dangerous to national security. and president lyndon johnson on two other occasions approached the ap executives to have me removed from the war area and there was lots of other influence, particularly on television owners and important owners of the networks. and it was in this environment than that the written and photographic product emerged from vietnam and it was a matter of controversy from the beginning and we
in an environment like this where i could explore whatever i could become passionate about. it was a fantastic opportunity. it actually got me out of clinical research and ultimately into doing more basic neuroscience . i spent 20 years looking at the doing thats -- research. and i came back to the nih. host: we have a call from missouri. good morning. caller: thank you for c-span. i finished two books by caroline leaf. i do not know whether she is a psychologist or psychiatrist. but her books are on thoughts and what enters the brain. i just find it really hard to stay with this problem because i have got a lot of problems with hate. and all of the information i see on television seems to be trytive information, and i to eliminate all of that. but it is almost impossible. all the wars. i mean, i am so happy that you have this program on this morning. i am going to hang up and listen to the program. thank you very much. host: thank you for the call. guest: by the way, i would like to make one remark. i am so delighted to have you here at nih. but i would not want your viewers to think that the
it is today on the internet or pamphlets in the old day, it is two-way conversational environment and people are passing things two and from friends and exchanging information along social networks and that is why it is social networking. this creates a community. that is what a social environment looks like and we have familiar with that on facebook and twitter. we see stuff from people we follow. the difference with mass media is that mass media is one-way and impersonal and talked down broadcast. the radio sits in the corner of the room. it isn't social. it is sitting there and you are not having a conversation with it. and no social networking or personal recommendation involved. we have come to thing of one-way media channels that reach a large audience; newspaper, television and internet. and we come to think this now is a change and we can get news from friends and you don't need to be a newspaper editor to decide what message is going to spread. but this is how things were in the era before the mass media. wuch co-- the period before old media looks very familiar. it is social from t
other, and it's very much a social environment. but there are many examples that occur throughout history, martin luther and his use of pamphlets, thomas paine and his pamphlet, "common sense," and the way they were used more broadly in the runup to the american and french revolutions. really what i'm arguing is when we use social media today, it's a reversion, actually, to the way media operated for centuries before us. >> host: you write that for wealthy romans, the distinction between letter writing and conversation was further blurred by the custom of dictating outgoing letters to scribes and having incoming letters read aloud to them. >> guest: indeed. so if you were someone like cicero or julius caesar, you would have a scribe. in fact, cicero -- sorry, caesar, was famous for being able to dictate two letters at once. so you would be dictating, then you would also have a staff of messengers who would be carrying these messages to your friends, and when incoming messagers brought a scroll, your scribe would perhaps realize it out to you. romans were capable of reading and wri
should answer to the american people. everyone agrees we need to protect the environment, but we should do so in a way that is open and honest. democracy requires transparency and accountability. yet epa's justification for regulation are cloaked in secrecy i asked. it appears the epa been a lot of stretches of science to justify its own object disappeared americans impacted by the agency's regulations have a right to see the data and determine for themselves independently these regulations are based on sound science for a partisan agenda. the epa's efforts to expand its regulatory reach across u.s. represented troubling trend. her example, take epa's current clean water act. it seeks to expand the definition of waters of the u.s. to give the agency unprecedented new authority over private property. according to media reports on this expansion of epa regulatory power could include almost all man-made and natural streams, lakes and ponds. this undermines states rights and increases federal control private property and could lead to the epa in our own backyard. the epa's efforts to demoni
to and subject to environments, challenges and change, threats change. and our world, our country, this institution is not in the same place as it was 12 years ago, or even five years ago. if you begin with, we have unwound from one long war in iraq. we are unwinding from the longest war we've ever been in in afghanistan. different kinds of threats today, different dynamics. strategic interests vary, but the other part of that is that it doesn't mean that we are retreating from any part of the world. in fact, i'm leaving tonight for the middle east to spend a couple of days in bahrain attending the dialogue and then over to qatar and maybe some other countries. but i will say in that speech that i give there, and it does relate to what we're talking about here today, that our interests, the united states of america's interests, are the world's interest. our interests are not defined by one region or one country or one area. and that's part of what this announcement is today as we develop toward and into the next year on a lot of changes and adjustments and realignments that will b

the provocative nature of the environment is gigantic. it's two-thirds of the reason that the gap exists. >> should the government be in boston trying to close that gap? the again the book says we will assume that's not going to change, the home environment. we will change the home environment i educating this generation for one generation in their homes will be very different. that is the premise. if help comes in the other way to my fantastic. again is it possible to close the gap? by the way one of them is more time in early childhood. more time in the school helps. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you for your talk. i will read your look. so, if we acknowledge the importance of culture, which i do and i wonder whether you agree that it's easier to start a new culture than it is to rip one out and change from within. if you agree with that then i wonder what you think about trying to change the significant base of troubled schools as opposed to restarting them as opposed to starting a new? >> wow you know that's a very topical and important question. we do not find the r
environment and what gives us the wonderful physical diversity we see in a roomful of people like this. although mutations can cause disease they also allow us to adapt and we should be thankful for them. the natural question that comes up in this context is how much do we differ? at these mutations are happening every time we produce how much variation is there among humans? if we look at identical twins these are nature's clones. identical twins differ at essentially zero dna aces. it's not quite true but it's close enough. they are identical at the dna level. if we look at unrelated humans do i have any guesses as to how much an unrelated pair of humans differs at the dna level black swan and what? well it's not very much. one and 1000. at the dna level this most fundamental unit of our biology, we are 99.9% identical. there's an important message right there. if we compare ourselves to our nearest biological relative to champ we are 99% identical to the gym. this is for dna sequences that we can line up and compare. we compare ourselves to the mouse we differ at about a sixth to a
environments. in other words, the lone wolf terrorist do not inherit from other states. they are a part of our society and subjects of the political and economic ideology and religious environments. in other words, many of them share values through the technology through the website and so forth. some operate on one basis of a single attack and some operate on multiple attacks. there were a number of studies that were developed over the years that we are trying to follow on a daily basis and i think that it requires a great deal of interest in terms of radicalization and international society tries to understand what can be done to deal with it. so ultimately the discussion would provide i think the initial context for the discussion and the first speaker as i mentioned is spike bowman who has a very rich background in the government and in the academic community and taking one course now sco w. and one for the interns he is a student in the class so to be paired with a class tomorrow. i think of spike is a very broad experience in the government and counterintelligence, and also various posit

that works focuses and makes sure that schools are welcoming, safe environment. welcoming, safe and collaborative environments. you can't show we a school that works or a district or a state or a cub that works -- country that works where that notion of collaboration as opposed to competition, that notion of welcoming and safe environment so that schools are central to communities are not the dominant theory as as opposed to testingd sanctioning. and so that's what we are trying to do, work with community, bottom-up solutions that are aligned with what communities need, great neighborhood public schools and, ultimately, really trying to make sure that every -- that public education is an anchor of our democracy, a to pell hour of our economy and probably most important, really, really make sure that we give and figure out how to enable all kids to have the opportunity to not only dream their dreams, but achieve them. >> and we are live this morning awaiting remarks from treasury secretary jacob lew on implementation of the dodd-frank financial regulations law. he will be introdu

. and trying to make those demands in a changing, uncertain environment where you got to look and say, well, you can't work this much this weekend. the reality is, it's not just figures. i've heard from my district story after story of small business owners saying, you know, congressman, i didn't hire anybody this week. i'm not going to hire anybody next year because i'm worried about the threshold. i don't know what the rules are going to be. i'm not going to take that risk. and these are successful businessmen and women. but the message we're sending from washington is that, you know, we'll let you know next year. it doesn't work that way. any further comments from you all? i know i'm about out of time. but that's the frustration i'm hearing. >> i would just add -- thank you. i would just add it's an issue crying out for leadership. leadership in terms of what you're doing here today. that is seeking out the truth. what is the truth? what are the facts? then coming to at least some sort of agreement on what you can agree on. i mean, the american people, the small business owners, the larg
. >> here's a great question with a constitutional test. with the current environment of their partisan politics, what past presidents would be most successful and with adjectives do they need a cerebral doesn't seem to work. [laughter] >> well, i think it would have been a hell of a lot more difficult for people like fdr, theodore roosevelt in this current media environment, because it's 24/7 new cycle. it's so much more difficult to escape the clutches, so to speak, of the press. you know, johnson used to sit in a hideaway office kneecap to kneecap with edward dirksen, the minority leader, and dirksen would say to them, mr. president, i know a fine young man in my home state of illinois who i believe deserves a judgeship and johnson would say, we will look into that. the deal was cut. johnson is going to get dirksen to vote on something and dirksen was going to get the judgeship for his constituency. if this were the case now, they would screen ugly bargain, political corruption. but that's how politics works. that's how it worked in the past, you see. and so it's so much more difficu
about this idea. if the political environment is tough with fb a reason to delay the law or grant a waiver to the law if you cite to the political environment as your justification? congress isn't doing what i want. i may suffer political damage so i'm going to do it anyway. i think in your testimony you did make some good points. i will give you that. you didn't cite the justification for delaying the mandate. he was asked about a press conference and he said in the normal political environment i would call the speaker and say this doesn't go to the essence of the law and we would've delay for a year but the but there wasn't a political environment on quote unquote obamacare. i think that is totally outlandish of the explanation and even more because congress by the time he made that statement had already passed the bill to delay the employer mandate precisely for the reason the president suggested. let me ask another question because professor turley, i appreciate her testimony and you cite above examples of the founding fathers. mr. lazarus you made the point that it doesn't me
to the current environment we may lose not only big verdes is that in in the last presidential race, but also some big votes that would otherwise have been possible through federal support. i believe we can combat the sideline and humanities they make in our batting title in viable to the larger world in whatever way possible and bring to bear the expense of vision that the humanities can offer and now more than others to challenge not only the arcane over specialization in academe, but also the narrowness of extremism that are all prevalent in america today. beneath the american renaissance at my other books is to try to represent the entire american experience from the grassroots up, including all varieties of writers to show how the most energetic forces and popular culture have been rechannel to refashion and timeless works of literature. thank you very much.

, volatile environment and a set of problems for which it is difficult to imagine solutions without someone catalyzing an international response. to me we cannot lose sight of the fact that we are a global power and global interest and that american power and security depends on staying engaged in the world and shaping events that happened far from our shores. we also have still i think a unique role to play in catalyzing international action to deal with challenges that we face. so the first lesson is that we need to resist the temptation to turn inward and a way for the world are you yes, we have to focus on getting our economic house in order and pushing our domestic agenda forward. but we also have to stay engaged in the world to ensure our own prosperity in the future. the second lesson is more tactical and that is as we have come out of the war in the past, typically the defense budget goes through the drawdown and we try to balance too much of the budget on the back of the force and we end up with a hollow force. we cut readiness and modernization disproportionately. we end up with a
, this environment is ripe. see, there's also the expected growth of 30% per year for the next three years. so one of the things that we did at sink or swim is we're really at the forefront of the technology era for online trading. and right now tastytrade, we have been at the forefront of the -- the amount of content that gets consumed through video every year is enormous. and so we need to make sure that the content is relevant, useful and entertaining. but what is also important to make sure that the technology that is provided is actually pushing the content, to -- the content to the customer. or has the ability to also curating the country to make sure it's organized and easy to find. on top of that, making sure that that video of that data is all on demand. they want it now. except. the younger demographdemograph ic expects that, expects that is all these access wherever they are. and also it is free and shareable. so thinking beyond just mobile access to your bank account, taking it one step further, something like simple. something like that which firms do today where you have access to yo
't easy to do in today's environment. >> i would conquer with my colleagues. >> thank you mr. chairman. >> i might comment on this you refer to the closing of the nuclear plant in southern california and california is a 33% renewable mandate and i was talking to one of the ceos of one of the major utilities out there and as they build new transmission lines to bring in renewable power to where they need it, they are getting in some instances specific instructions relating to some going underground on the transmission lines which raises a lot of technical issues and the ceo informed me that in the mileage that they are going underground is costing his utility $100 million a mile. so you know, we are talking about some costly situations in some cases. at this time i would recognize the gentleman from texas for five minutes. >> thank the chair for your patience. i will take only a maximum of four hours and four minutes on my time. chairwoman lafleur, commissioner moeller and clark, welcome, happy holidays. i have one question on the tax credit and start with you in the sugar. as you know
you would think that our schools were hospital environments for girls, they were second-class citizens, they were held back in every way which was important when in fact it was the exact opposite. the wellesley report was a very well-meaning -- they were so carried away with his victim agenda they failed to notice it was actually boys who had lower grades, boys who were more likely to drop out and less likely to go to college and yet not only did we have the wellesley report, but carol gilligan at harvard university debating girls as she said a are drowning and disappearing in a sea of western culture, that was her quotation, mary piper talking about revising ophelia, young women were in a state of extreme duress and suffering and falling behind, the exact opposite was true. girls by the mid 90s were flourishing in ways which were unprecedented. as a philosophy professor i would look at my classroom, increasingly female dominated. the girls were getting the better grades and rising. i began to check these facts to find out how did they come a -- there was so much success for women, wom
and principal intersection we have to make sure that we do not restrict the environment for the students to enter into. we have to be careful that we tread lightly. i have one question for you. you mention that the year-round telnet program, something that i have championed as a number of years ago. but that has gone by the wayside and those have been used to try to restrain the cost of the pell grant program. you mention this kind of in passing on page three. >> sure, first of all, the institutions are affected by ending what has been called the second tower and particularly black colleges in particular. the situation is that a number of students are coming in underprepared academically 45% and 45% at least one academic course. they are having to learn a postsecondary level, which is why we should have a college career ready for all students in because they were on track, they were not on track to graduate on time. what happened is that is that they were catching up. so that when they began their second year, they were actually going to be checking your students instead of a second-year
's difficult to do this. it's a threatening environment sometimes with all of the discriminatory language we hear in some context against muslims. i would say if americans generally are one and what can we do to facilitate more of this critical discourse, part of it is in combating discrimination against muslims to create the space in which people can express themselves. there is some wonderful work being done. i was just in houston and i met -- they came early on a saturday morning to see me. this is their level of commitment. we were meeting at 8 a.m. on a saturday morning. some people in the pakistani community had founded the alliance for tolerance and compassion and they were bringing pakistanis who are shiites and sunnis together to counter secularism, counter violence in their countries and to try to build a coalition around this opposition view of extremism and violence. i think these little efforts that are beginning to crystallize are so important, even though much more can be done. authenticity, i think now in our minds in this area we have a certain idea of what it means to be a
for me is a program that is an acronym that stands for results only work environment and it's a management strategy that companies right now gap inc. is using it and basically what they say is this is especially pertinent to the knowledge workers. forget about time as you know it, forget about clocking in at a clocking out. we are always available anyway so who cares. forget about showing up for meetings. meetings are optional. your sole job is your employee is we are going to hold you accountable to resolve. what this does is it kind of turns the paradigm around because it means employees that are repeated at their jobs and effective and efficient end up being reworded for that and people who are just a buzz in the chair but they are there for 12 hours a day, they are no longer reworded for just kind of showing up and companies become more profitable. there's all kind of case studies around it so that is one example, the vikings that there is a lot to be gained for the businesses figuring this out because the fact is we are not living the 1950s model anymore. we can't assum
, the media played a role in this. and so, i think it was just this was the environment in which they grew up. >> [inaudible] you pointed this out in the book and somehow [inaudible] there is a healing process going on in this tragedy but there are many other places they don't go to any kind of awareness. you move further away from manhattan and upstate new york you find much more of this. when you explored this rhetoric of hatred and the kind of thing in this case we are saying they were kids, 16, 17-years-old, they were probably hearing things at home and on the radio all the time and on facebook you can post anything on immigrants and have ten or 15 people saying the exact same thing. it's the extent you've been able to reflect this and get some wisdom over this, what is the record that makes someone that lives and works in today's rhetoric to go and actually gang up with some buddies spin echo >> i want to say several things about this. in manhattan we live on the evolution of things don't happen here. they do. and a few blocks from here on a columbia professor was attacked recently by a
between our armed forces. and from that demanding combat environment this kandahar, we transitioned two years ago to operation attention to train -- to the training mission devoted to supporting nato's main strategic objective, that of preparing the afghan national security forces to take responsibility for afghanistan's security by themselves. since 2011 canada has been the second largest contributor to the nato training mission after the united states. and and as kathleen said, roughly 950 of our troops focused on giving the afghans the tools they need not only to fight the taliban and affiliates, but also to train their own forces in this effect. indeed, afghan forces are now not only planning and leading most security operations across the nation, but 90% of all military training in afghanistan is now being conducted by the afghans themselves. that's a strategic and operational success, one that will pay dividends over the long term by helping insure that afghan forces can sustain their progress and ultimately help prevent afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe haven for terror
are somewhat different because we have to try to set standards in an environment of incomplete information. we don't have the benefit of decades of experience, and we know challenges are revolving. but it's still incumbent upon us to try to develop meaningful, cost effective regulation that we can enforce in an environment of imperfect knowledge. two weeks ago the commission approved version five of the critical infrastructure protection standards that cover the bulk electric grid against cybersecurity incidents. they're not perfect, we did is ask some questions as we approved them, things that we wanted modified, but they represent a substantial step forward from the protections that were in place before with. we've also started a rulemaking to require standards to protect against geomagnetic disturbances that can be caused by solar storms and human actions, a real example of high-impact, low-frequency threats to reliability that we need to get ready for before they happen. finally, i want to touch on the subject that congressman waxman raised, the physical security of the assets that make up
liberal arts? even in a nondemocratic environment. also, how dare does qatar support the yearning for freedom in places like libya and syria, where is itself is a nondemocratic political system. and so what are the calculations that go on in the minds of these leaders that prompt them to make these decisions that really do not seem quite logical, or in many ways coherent. my response to that or my gut feeling to that is that they make decisions based upon several calculations and first and foremost, is this the right decision? does it serve our interests? does it not alienate the united states? does not alienate them even if they do not agree with it. and is it something that brings us this in an international community and help our branding efforts and doesn't help us in those terms and conspicuously absent are the consequences, the unintended consequences. and so i think that the assumption is that we have enough resources to deal with what ever unintended consequences may arise and when you have a robust alumni and 10 years of all of these individuals who are graduates of north

a single innocent bystander and if possible without telling anybody on the other side. in an environment where our european friends were pushing a peace plan that all of us thought had no chance in the world to succeed, but made us feel like they didn't want to do. we had a policy, we wanted to lift the arms embargo on the bosnians because the bosnian muslims could not get arms and the serbs have all the arms they needed courtesy of slobodan milosevic in serbia and we wanted the authority to use air strikes in early 1993 and warren christopher went to europe and the europeans told him to go home. they had no intention of doing this. so we went home and went back to work. you remember later, they talked about this in the panel, we finally got slowly, slowly, slowly more involved with more permission from our allies to do what i wanted us to do together. we got permission to do humanitarian air drops. that made a difference and leon went to work on sanctions that the un supported. than we had a safe area declared which worked until it didn't and 7,000 people were killed but they would not
the environment. so my question is what i am hearing or sensing and it isn't just for west virginia in this exploration of the marsalis and number of states it seems to be a potential jurisdictional problem starting to flare up a little bit and one of them is should we be treating the ngo thereby allowing the federal government to take care of that or should we continue having them handle this at the state level? do you have a position on that? >> i haven't thought of the jurisdictional question. it's a good thing for the committee to be looking at. there is a lot of stranded gas capacity as well as gas that is being flared because there isn't sufficient take away capacity for the liquids. the only do the pricing for the liquids pipeline under the interstate commerce act, but we don't do this writing. i suspect some of the sites would not welcome federal fighting. i think that we could do it well because we do it well with gas pipelines. but it might not be as popular with some of the states involved. but i think we have done a good job with it. >> whether or not are you going to ta
but it's not about us rebuilding of anniston. it's about as providing a security environment that allows that guinness and to build itself in an independent self secured afghanistan is absolutely in the national security interest of the united states of america. we forget that it's where the planning, financing and recruiting and training happened for 9/11. i will guarantee you they are licking their chops thinking making get back into those eastern provinces. we just can't let that happen and i don't know if you are familiar with the status of forces agreement that would give some function of the protection of our soldiers to operate there and how we would operate them and these are good international agreements. karzai is playing a game and i think he is figuring we want to the deal more than he wants the deal or he thinks we have to have a deal and i hope we don't play this game of chicken and turn away and walk away and i don't think that is where the mindset is. this deal is really important and by the way it sends a message both to our adversaries and their allies in the region tha
of these things give us a predisposition. that does not mean we are going to get the disease. the environment, behavior, social aspects of life, all of these things influence it. it is the interplay, especially for more common diseases, hypertension, diabetes. we know that there is an interplay. genetic predisposition but in terminal contributions. -- but environmental contributions, what you are eating, how much you exercise. i want to emphasize that genomics is a key part of this puzzle but it is not the only part. host: from maryland, william is joining us. dr. eric green at nih. -- i wasy question is in vietnam and i can't malaria. i stayed in the field house for three months. when i came back to fort brag, i had a relapse. i am having problems. i cannot hear that well. warts growing out of me. the va cut the amount. -- cut them out. what kind of side effect or long-term effect is this? host: can you adjust that? thet: dr. fauci would be expert on that. this is an infectious disease. i would refer you to the institute that he runs to get the sort of insight. what i will tell you to make t
of these things give us a predisposition, but that doesn't mean that we will get this. the environment, the behavior, the social aspects of life, all of these things are influenced and it is the interplay, especially for these were common diseases like hypertension and diabetes and so forth. we know that there is an interplay and a genetic predisposition of what you are eating and how much exercise you are getting and so on and so forth. so this is where it gets very complicated, but i want to make sure that i emphasize that the genomic is a key part of this puzzle. >> host: we have doctor eric green, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: hello, i was in vietnam and i caught malaria and when i came back to fort bragg, i had a relapse. i am having problems and i cannot hear that well. and i have these warts or what whatever growing out of me and the va cut it out. what kind of long-term effect will this have? >> the person that spoke with me on these interviews would really be the expert on that. this is an expert on infectious disease and we have a world expert on t
they were -- it was part of the -- this was the environment in which they grew up. >> you point out in the book that there's a healing process going on, and tragedy, but many other places where they don't go through any kind of work, even in the state of new york, and, you know, you move far away from the state upstate new york, you find much more peace. when you explored these effects of the reck rick of hatred, postures all the time, i mean, these kids were saying that, and i also think it's important to say they were kids, 16, 17 years old. >> right. >> they probably repeated things they heard at home, that parents would say. >> right. >> that, you know, many well-known actors on fox radio say all the time. >> uh-huh. >> the kind of threat we find on facebook. we post any story about immigrants, we have immediately 10-15 people saying exactly the same thing, only worse, so those who live through this wretched, and to go and actually gang up with buddies and chase. >> yes. i want to say several things about this. first of all, i think in manhattan, we live under the illusion that
whether they originate in the wire line environment or in a wireless environment. so, yeah, i would say america's future is a wire line future. >> the future of the communications industry with u.s. telecom head walter mccormick tonight on "the communicators" at 8 p.m. eastern on c-span2. >> next, house and senate negotiations on a budget compromise. the plan, due by this friday. this is from today's washington journal. >> host: welcome back. we're joined now by bob bixby, executive director of the concord coalition. thank you for joining us this morning. >> guest: you're welcome. >> host: over the weekend it was reported that negotiators are getting closer to a budget deal. tell us what that's likely to look like and what it means. >> guest: well, it looks like what they're going to try to do is replace about two years' worth of the sequestration cuts which was a lower level of cap that went into effect earlier this year and replace the savings so it wouldn't add to the deficit by increasing some government fees and perhaps requiring a higher contribution from federal workers for their
say that our primary focus really should be on continuing to put in place an environment that creates jobs, that lays a foundation for economic growth, and that's one of the things that getting a budget deal would help do. we've recently seen some signs of progress in the economy, the jobs report on friday was positive with over 200,000 private-sector jobs added in november, and we've now had 45 straight months of private-sector job growth. but we all know that we're not out of the woods yet. we have a lot more work to do. and we need to build on the momentum that is there to get more people back to work. when i travel around new hampshire, my constituents tell me that they're very frustrated with the gridlock in washington and what they want is for us to agree on a budget and to take action that supports economic growth. granite staters are absolutely right about that. with the potential budget agreement, we have an opportunity to eliminate some of the uncertainty in our economy, to eliminate some of those harmful cuts that are part of sequestration, the automatic budget cuts and to
that there woken be much change. and again that kind of non-dynamic environment is an opportunity, not a obstacle. a big institution lots of people care about sometimes during the course of the year lots ever people will tune in. is there constitutional right to same-sex marriage? yeah there's a big part of population interested of that. is obamacare constitutional? a huge number of people will focus on it in an institution will not adapt itself because it is very stayed in -- staid in getting that information out there. what it is they're that we're doing as part after national conversation it should be clear to everyone we're hardly alone. so for example, american lawyer media for which tony now works, has this wonderful publication, supreme court insider, which is getting more information about the court. pete now reports not on, all the law that, the justice department, the supreme court but they have instead of one platform in nbc news now, msnbc ends the website of "nbc news." so i do think that we're far from alone in taking advantage of the lower cost of distribution. we should talk at so
environment, the compliance rate will go up and then i'll see the number drop over time. so the answer to your question is, is i fix it by putting procedures in place that drive the ro in the right direction and put system i think i think if -- fixes in place that force the behavior to ensure the veteran gets the right decision. >> before i yield, e i remind you and remind everybody how many times secretary sat there and talked about accountability. you do all the system call stuff you want. if you are not motivating people to do it, i know they are highly motivated people who want to do right by the veteran. there's a lack of accountability there. and across the board, but with that i'll yield to mr. oh -- >> thank i apologize for missing the second half of the hearing. i'll get ab update how you responded to the specific issues raised by ms. price and the veteran service organizations that were here. so just briefly bring up two issues. one, is in el paso at fort bliss we have 1800 cases, 1100 are backlogged at the derail site in seattle. and so just a plea from cornel and william beau month
